    Default 2D Game

    Hello, I want to create 2D game, something like Mario. But I'm quite novice in Java, so I don't exactly know what I need, so, what I should know from API if I want to create this type of game?

    I'm not wanting to burst your bubble or anything, but you may want to take things slowly at this point, and your time may be better served learning Java basics and moving up from novice to journeyman before tackling a project of this complexity.

    I finished book Head First Java second Edition and I made 3 little projects with command line. So, what I need to do next?

    If you've completed that book, then you're not quite a beginner anymore, and I retract what I said. Please accept my apologies.

    If you really want to tackle a 2D game, you need to make make some basic decisions -- is it going to be a very simple game, if so consider using the Swing graphics library. If not, then you may need to use a third party library such as the Lightweight Java Game Library (LWJGL), the same library used for Minecraft and similar games. Consider going to a gaming forum as well, as you may need to use non-Java libraries as well.
